Visit the curriculum web pages for course descriptions, schedules for core curriculum courses and other curricular and extra-curricular opportunities.

View the following:

The Individual Development Plan is a communication tool between the mentor and the graduate student. The IDP helps the student and mentor set clear expectations and identify milestones to help the trainee achieve specific research objectives in the areas of publications, presentations, and science. The IDP supports the mentee, through a self-reflective process, in developing long-term goals, identifying career specific skills, and implementing a course of action to achieve the desired goals of the lab. The expected results of the IDP are improved communication skills, better time management, increased productivity, and a more transparent mentor-postdoc relationship.

Students can develop their IDP by visiting the myIDP Science Careers website.

Detailed information about Baylor's Individual Development Plan Process can be accessed online.
